I hope you are hopping through the list !
 You should have arrived here from Airless Chambers
and next is Dream In Darkness.
 If you have arrived here by chance, do go back to Terra and the start -
 and find out about the prizes you might win!

You will find the full list on my side bar...

Yesterday I left you with this - the first few pages of my album:

Today I am showing you the second side of my first 'page' which continues the pumpkin theme. I wanted to use one of my favourite techniques - triple stamping.
I had been trawling through my old makes and come across this set of ATCs from 2012 - and thought I could use the idea again...oh - that's me dressed as a pumpkin...

I started with 3 rectangles of black card 5.75 by 3.75ins, 4.75 by 2.75 ins, 3.75 by 1.75 ins, three of white 5.5 by 3.5 ins, 4.5 by 2.5 ins, 3.5 by 1.5ins:

The white cards are layered up and stamped randomly.
I used a stamp that I picked up in a bargain box and Hero Arts 'soft canteloupe'.

The pieces are then layered up:

and added to the page.

I then wanted to construct an ATC sized version - so again I cut a series of rectangles starting with black 3.5 by 2.5 inches and decreasing each dimension by 0.75 in. for the smaller ones and the white just an eighth inch smaller each way.

The ATC was formed in a similar way to above.

My plan was to add a spider to each design but I decided they would be two thick at this stage of the book - so I went for net and ribbon flowers (as in 2012), making another ATC with brown card layers.

The final touch was to add a pumpkin banner from SLSLines

More tomorrow!!
